On linux, Hermes has a transparent window and/or shows strange artefacts


This can be caused by having desktop effects enabled on your linux system. To determine if this is the cause, please disable desktop effects and see if Hermes launches properly.

If it does, then you can eliminate the problem even with desktop effects enabled by editing the script run_application.sh and add the line


somewhere before the end.​
